AC Milan’s interest in Olivier Giroud does not seem to be as strong as some sources are suggesting, according to the latest from Sky.
Calciomercato.com reported last night that Giroud is getting ‘closer and closer’ to joining the Rossoneri as Milan have reached an agreement in principle with the entourage of the 34-year-old on the basis of a two-year deal at around €4m net per season. Giroud is also house shopping ahead of a possible move.
Speaking in the Sky studio (via MilanNews), Luca Marchetti revealed that Giroud is a name that Milan are thinking about and he is an opportunity of the market because his contract is about to expire. He claims that Milan have not yet talked to Giroud’s agents, because Milan’s ideas are more likely to be about younger players right now. Giroud could be a valid alternative to younger options because, despite his age, he still has something left in the tank.
